Any victim irrespective of citizenship and place of residence can fill in the form below.
The process will take not more than 30-40 minutes, and you will meet zero costs and risks. At the same time, it will cause great problems to the WEX owners and managers who at the time of fraud hoped that the U.S. law system would be passive as to the recovery of BTC-E users’ money (see https://www.bbc.com/russian/features-46444479).
It’s very important that everyone fill in the form. In this case, the amount of damage will be sufficient (several millions of dollars), and the authorities will have to investigate the case quite carefully. For the fraudsters, it will mean long legal proceedings and great costs for American lawyers.
The form is in English. In case of difficulties, please use Google Translate.

Withdrawals were blocked. Then, there appeared the opportunity to withdraw funds (minor cryptocurrencies) with 30-90% commission. The support team asked to wait for some time. In November 2018, the site Wex.nz stopped responding, and then the support team stopped responding also. In December 2018, WEX mirrors sites stopped responding at all.
